opinion on tires and refer

Just got back from 1500 mile three week trip and thought I would give a few opions on new tires and res fridge. Before trip I instaled all new tires Mich XZE2 plus 275-70-22.5 . I had the GY 670 on from new with about 25k on them and they were starting to river. The ride is no better on the small bumps but much better on the larger bumps and pot holes. Handling is about the same. I had Dyna beads put in all the tires and that seems to do the job. Very smooth. When Buying tires I had a choise of XZE2 plus or XZA2 Energy Mich. I called mich company and asked what the difference was. They had some one from the truck div, call me back the next day. Very nice to talk to , and he said there isn't much difference and that either one will ride the same . He kinda steered me towards the XZE2 plus saying it was a newer design and will probably be around longer if you need to match a tire later on, other than that both tires would be good for a MH . Next I installed the Samsung 197 refer last fall and we used it all summer on three different trips. All I can say is I'll never go back to a RV fridge. That is the best upgrade we have done, the DW loves it. Even in 100 degree weather it stayed ice cold.
